Karl Dennison's Tiny Universe has a sort of jazzy feel, and Maktub is funky blues ish ... the problem is that the blues almost exclusively for the entire genre is anti-taping. not only non-pro, but make it known that they don't like people taping their shows. because of this, the number of blues bands that are on archive.org is very low (if at all). but i too would love to hear some ... hopefully others post with thier favorites... if nothing comes of it, i'd suggest looking around db.etree.org for a B&P of some old Albert King stuff from the late 60's. not sure if he is related to BB but man does he know how to play the blues... robert johnson has some good stuff too. oh and just thought of it: G Love and Special Sauce are very blues influence and have a southern blues feel. lots of lazy guitar and harmonica, mixed with funk and rock and dirty lyrics, but Garrett (lead singer. aka g love) is a blues man at heart. Check out this recent after-festival party show he did at a tiny bar in Laguna Beach, CA last october. I taped it and the first set is worse in quality then the second set, but the first set has him doing a whole slew of clasic early 20th century blues tunes. enjoy! ~Tyler

Check out Howard Fishman. While he's not limited to strictly blues, he's obviously influenced by Son House and Robert Johnson among others.
